How Many

I’m pretty sure we have wondered about what someone might think. We all get there. The question is: What do you make of it? How do you move forward from this train of thoughts? Or why don’t you?

Why does it matter?

I always find it interesting to see how much value we give something that should not even enter our minds. I find it interesting to see that we all care about the opinion of a stranger at one point or another.

Hopefully we mature and realize that the opinion of a stranger is not important. It doesn’t matter what someone thinks of us that has never even met us. What matters is how people feel about us who truly know us. And the kind of character they have.

The people who are your real friends, your tribe, the people with value will not talk badly behind your back. They will describe what they like about you. What they cherish in your friendship.

Our life is much easier if we focus on what truly matters. If we look for quality instead of quantity…

Tell Me Something Good #115

Let’s dip that Monday in glitter and sparkle all day. And while we are at it how about we sparkle all week? Let’s start this week in a positive way.

It’s easy:

• Mention something that you consider being good in the comments

• Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.

• Share this post and invite your followers as well.

You know it by now! We are not moving any further without a little happy dance. So shake those hips and whatever else you need to shake and dance…

Let’s dance. Move it. Enjoy it… Maybe let’s skip the drink… but other than that: Let’s wiggle around, shake those hips, shimmy and have fun. Dance into the week and take and let the mojo tango or salsa you through the week… and once you are done, here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“Being ask to write a guest post for a blog you admire is simply amazing. That’s one of the amazing things that happened to me (stay tuned). On top of that I got asked to work an event with a friend of mine and while it was a demanding role and my body feels super sore today, it was amazing and gave me the buzz I needed. The last couple of days were amazing as we also spent heaps of family time, heading to places we’ve been and places we’ve never been before and experienced our “backyard” as a family. I feel like one of those toys you could wind up and they would then go full speed. All of this gave me so much energy and I can’t wait for the next couple of outings we have planned…”

Don’t Quit

Funny how we look at dreams and think it’s only a “dream”… in doing so you already kind of “give up”. I think a lot about dreams and visions and which of the two words might be the better one to use.

A dream is something so wonderful. Magical. Something nice, positive. A wish. Because we see it that way we might wonder or even doubt that we’d ever get there. Maybe it seems unreal.

A vision is a goal. Something we consider achievable even if it might seem so far away, maybe almost impossible to achieve. But it’s doable. We can see a way to make it happen.

I wonder if we make our dreams more real by turning them into visions? I guess that’s why this meme has struck a chord with me.

Don’t be an ironing board! Don’t quit!

Have gentleness in your eyes and loving-kindness in your smile. I love this. We should approach every day like this. Although it’s no longer Monday on my side of the planet, it’s still time to make this week a good one. A positive one. Let’s tackle the week with gentleness and loving-kindness. To ourselves and to others.

Let’s kick this week off on a positive note:

It’s easy:

• Mention something that you consider being good in the comments

• Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below).

Keep it up for as long as you want and once you are done here’s what I like to share with you this week:

“I’m flat out! So much to get on top of. With my business but also with my volunteer work. And of course there is the family as well. I’m not stressed out. Not at all. I’m doing one step at a time but sometimes something has to give and in the moment it’s my blog. I can’t fit it in at the moment. Often I’m mentally too exhausted to sit down and come up with a good post. The mind has to be free in order to write. Don’t you think? My mind is occupied with so much at the moment. I know it will get better. You are probably wondering what the positive is here? Well I’m here writing this and you are here reading this and that’s amazing. I love our little community we have here. The support, the encouragement we give each other. I appreciate you being here right now and reading this. This is my happy moment, my something good I want to share with you. Because although I’m not posting the way I used to do, you are still here reading this. So thank you! Thank you for kicking my week off in a positive way :-)….”
